I normally bank with Bank of America but since there isn’t any Bank of America branches in Hawaii, I had to open a bank account In Hickam Federal Credit Union.
I work at Hickam AFB so I thought for convenience, I would open an account at Hickam FCU.
What a beating!!!! They say you are eligible to open an account if you live/work/ or go to school in Hawaii.
Well they would not allow me to open an account for months when I first moved here even though I had a job.
I was still shopping for a place to rent or a place to buy and was staying in my car at the time.
They should change their motto to “You can open an account if you prove you have a permanent residence here only”.
I even stayed at the YMCA for a period of time so I could use their address but Hickam FCU still would not allow me to open an account until I bought a place.
I stay with them because now that they finally let me open an account, it is convenient.
As far as recommending this credit union, NO….not unless you like being treated like trash.
